Who Are You Holds Press Conference and Releases New Preview with Cast Interview

The cast of the upcoming cable network tvN Mon-Tues drama Who Are You attended a press conferences yesterday as the drama gears up for its premiere next week. This was an off-week for tvN since Cyrano Dating Agency finished airing last week, but a breather is never a bad thing. The tone of the two dramas couldn’t be anymore different and CDA viewers tuning in might have a collective fright to go from the rainbows and unicorns of CDA’s frothiness to creepy ghosts stalking a heroine through a dank hospital hallway. I don’t think WAY is intended to be full on horror, but the general concept of sticking dead people in a drama and styling them as dead spirits will send some chills down the spine nevertheless. So Yi Hyun toggles between leading lady and second lead status with equal measure, and I actually like her more when she’s playing second leads (Resurrection, Cheongdamdong Alice). I think her lithe gracefulness gets her cast as soft characters often but she’s got this steeliness in her delivery that actually belies how fragile she looks. I like that her character is a decorated cop before she fell into a coma, and after she awakens she faces the double whammy of not having a memory and suddenly seeing ghosts. At the press conference, her white strapless dress with the weird cutout skirt overlay is….unique for sure and looks good on her even if the dress itself is not particularly attractive. I can’t get over how Taecyeon looks like a giant boy in real life, his honking ears and doofy smile make me want to pinch his cheeks, and here he looks like he took his noona to the prom. I hope their chemistry onscreen is less older sister escorting younger brother out. Kim Jae Wook made me double over in hilarity, his top half with the white dress shirt looks fine, and then your eyes travel South and you witness what appears to be trouser palazzo pants. What. The. Hell. Dude, please regain your fashion sense. The extended cast consists of Kim Ye Won and former child actor Noh Young Hak in his first adult role (made all the more hilarious since he just finished playing young Lee Sang Yoon in Goddess of Fire), along with veterans Kim Chang Wan and Park Young Ji. WAY arrives a week before The Master’s Sun so hopefully the comparisons will end before both air at the same time because the stories will be so different.

  1. Wow, 3 fashion duds as the leading figures in this drama….

    My eyes, my eyes!

    Also, I really dislike the nose job that Kim Jae Wook had. I thought he was better looking before when he was on Coffee Prince. Does anyone else feel the same?

    • I honestly did not recognize him. WHY WHY WHY do these actors and actresses get plastic surgery that makes them look like everyone else? He had such an arresting, unique face and now it is gone. And he was my last reason for having any interest in this drama at all, since I am highly allergic to Taecyeon.

      • I too almost didn’t recognize him. I liked his look before. Not sure what I think of the look now.

      • Errr……..actually I tried to find out about his nose job online but actually found nothing. And also as I draw portraits a lot, I compared his noses of his old and current photos and the proportion looks same.
        Honestly, I think he just gained some fat in his face which seems to pull his face towards the side. I think that plus lack of long hair is cause of your confusions.

        (I know, I sound insane. Yes, when it comes to KJW, I can be a freak)

    • LOL, I read Koala’s description first and then scroll down to see this. My reaction was like: “Those pants @@, you gotta be kidding me” 😀

  2. omo omo..so in 2 weeks time, MGY is going head to head with her besties (particularly with MCW in Good Doctor) & SYH in WAY?? …why not make them all three stars in a drama together after this..and make it something like..I need romance..ekekekek…(sorry a bit unrelated post)

  3. Ufff… from her dress to his pants, I think all fashion in this press conference is horrible. They can fire their coordis. Talking about the drama itself, I don’t think I will be seeing it, too much mellow, and too similar to 49 days, and I cried buckets of tears. And I must say that I dislike Taecyeon acting, soooo… I’ll start watching Godess of fire.

  4. I must saw KJW looks dour face in almost all the stills I’ve seen in so far. At least he’s smiling in ONE picture here. Is he already in character or what?

  5. Are those things KJW is wearing supposed to be hakama pants?

    I guess I’ll check this out for the flashback scenes, Taecyeon’s acting is too teeth-grindingly mechanical to watch even though I like So Yi-hyun.

  6. Taecyeon and So Yi Hyun look so awful together… it would have made more sense for Taecyeon to have been the ghostly boyfriend – although that part may be too demanding for his limited skills lbr – and Kim Jae Wook the new partner. Don’t know what the producers were smoking to be quite honest.

  7. Are Kim Jae Wook’s shirt collar & So Yi Hyun’s lacy skirt made of the same material? The shirt’s ok, but those pants! Did he steal them from a fatter, shorter man? Ugh for the fashion all around. Hopefully their personal stylists will have zero input in their clothes in the show.

  8. Maybe KJW is newly-circumcised…. boys in my country wear loose pants/shorts, sometimes even their mom’s skirts, after going through that procedure. could also explain his dour expression.

  9. Kim Jae Wook’s pants are so hilarious that I have no words to describe them.. What are those and why is he wearing them?!?
